Laguna Beach Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable crash victims on our roadways. Although pedestrian accidents are not as common as other types of collisions, they are far more likely to result in death or serious injuries for those involved. The reasons for this are relatively obvious. A pedestrian has no protection from the force and impact of an accident. In most cases, the pedestrian also has little time to react in order to avoid the crash. Each year, thousands of victims are seriously hurt or killed in Southern California pedestrian accidents.
If you or a loved one have been affected by a pedestrian crash in Laguna Beach, you should speak with an attorney about your legal rights as soon as possible.
